Facebook Changed it’s Logo Yesterday and You Probably Didn’t Notice

Facebook quietly changed its iconic logo yesterday and you probably didn’t even notice. The update was nothing major, just a simple refresh of the company’s wordmark, the text-only version of its logo that readily identifies the brand.

It is the first time they’ve changed it since since 2005 and the new logo was developed the company’s in-house designers with help from design firm Process Type Foundry, the same firm that worked on the old Facebook typeface.

Facebook decided to just go with an upgrade rather than a replacement and the famed “F” was left untouched –which is probably why you didn’t really notice the change.

 
 

The thinking behind the typeface refresh was that Facebook needed to reflect the company’s maturity while also maintaining continuity.

Have a look for yourself.
